, immigration, things -- the financial problems, we're going to have a debt ceiling, things that we've got to worry about, we're going to worry about when do we take the budget out of the budget and give it to the appropriator, they have to pass a bill given the numbers they are given. the numbers in the house will be different than the numbers in the senate. i see a few months from now, september 30th, it looming and the same fights we've been through. so i think the president in his budget did make a move on some of the mandatory spending effort that i've been calling for, because he talked about a balanced approach and we haven't done anything about mandatory, which is the real problem. because if you eliminate all the discretionary spending, we still have a half trillion dollars deficit annually. >> mr. chairman, sorry to interrupt. we're running out of time. i would like to hear your secretary of -- opinion of secretary hagueen, chuck hagel. it's been on the job for a couple of months now. you were very critical of him, with those in your party , how would you rate the job he is doing

, that's right. and if you look at the other big bills that have been passed, the debt ceiling extension, sandy relief or violence against women act, it was about 25% to 40% of the republican caucus and then overwhelming number of democrats who passed those pieces of legislation. so it will be no different if gun reform passes, and immigration reform passes. >> you make a good point, alex. it's very similar to the debt negotiations for the grard bargain. if we're going to pass this, we need huge democratic marge orts, and that means our folks have to man up and woman up and accept a few things that aren't exactly like they want them, too. that's going to be the case on the debt deal and it will be the case on immigration deal. >> but congressman let me ask you, a huge part of this is because the republican party knows that you've ameliorated the image among latinos and hispanic, understanding they're notรง monolithic voting blocs. when you have this sort of cross-debate between mod rats in the party, much more broad-minded in terms of their semantic and their actual legislation they're

will not negotiate around the debt ceiling. you for your testimony to date. i want to spend some time talking about the presidential proposal. on this question of debt and how we are right, is it fair to say that the 2001 bush tax cuts but was not paid for at the time by this congress added to this country's debt burden? >> there were two wars that will were not paid for. >> as a result of the collapse, andook a $22 trillion hits necessitated a substantial bailouts by this institution. both of which added to our debt burden. is that correct? to the fourates were looking plans that you it does seem to me to be forward-looking plan despite suggestions to the contrary. we are in a very peculiar situation as it relates to our recovery under the administration. it has 6 million private sector jobs that have been created. we have corporate profits at a double high. we have saw market at near all- time highs. the productivity of an american worker is at an all-time high. highloyment remains itself. we have somet economic indicators that seem to suggest we're doing well but others suggest we have a ways to

by the republicans in the house to increase the debt ceiling. at the end of the day, we got $2.5 in spending. restrapets that was the cap and the sequester. there's been repeated efforts by democrats in the senate and the white house to undue that agreement of august 2011, but it has held. the sequester is holding despite not letting kids go through the white house or the easter egg hunts and not letting the blue angels fly. this is the boy cried wolf kind of thing. at the end of the day, taxpayers won that fight. those who believed in d.c., you had to raise taxes in order to get any spending restraints. we're wrong. we got the -- they were wrong. obama -- president obama is again saying i will never let you cut the budget unless you give me tax increases. he said that for the last three years and he has lost several times on that fight. does he want to have spending restraint or entitlement reform? don't think so. democratic senate with 59 or 60 votes. he woke up every morning and he could have reform entitlements but he didn't, he went to bed. someone could do something for 00 days like qu

to unfold and as the debt ceiling once again approaches. indeed, it was made all the more worrisome by the house republican hearing yesterday that focus on the debt ceiling in terms of the possibility of prioritizing our obligations, obligations all emanating from congressional actions. we cannot continue on this dangerous path. hopefully this hearing will serve a constructive opportunity to embrace a different path. i yield back. >> thank you very much, mr. levitt. again, it's my pleasure to welcome secretary jack lew back to the committee on ways and means. we look forward to your testimony. the committee has received your written statement. it will be made a part of the formal record. secretary lew, you're recognized for five minutes. >> thank you, mr. chairman, and thank you, mr. chairman, ranking member levin, for your gracious welcome here today. it's an honor to appear and to visit the president's budget for next year. and i sit here as the chairman noted, surrounded by four decades of memories of many important occasions. when bipartisan cooperation has moved the country for

me they are ready. >> on the debt ceiling, how do you see it playing out? you want it todo play out? >> the house is going to move a bill to give the treasury the ability to make interest payments, to make social security payments, in some particular fashion. our ur goal here is to put spending on a sustainable path. it isn't to default on our debt. the goal is to cut spending. i've made clear that until we get spending cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balance the budget in the next 10 years we're going to have fights. >> are you willing to have it turn out in 2011 again, to get to that level of suspense? >> i spent two and half years focused on this one issue in a big way. i think most you have understand my point to get this government to deal honestly with the spending problem. i've watched this government kick the can down the road and kick the can down the road. i swore to myself they would not do it and i'm not. briefing hner earlier. nancy pelosi had a briefing as well. >> tomorrow marks the 100th day of the 113th congress. i believe for the first 100 days he republ

by the amount raised the debt ceiling, 2.1 cheyenne. 1.1 trillion was sequestered. if the agreement was not reached by the committee in the committee did not reach an agreement, there is no provision in the budget control act agreement to raise taxes. the president did raise taxes $600 billion, there was never an agreement to raise taxes. so that's where we've got a loggerhead. this is the problem. at the end of debate i remember when the president guaranteed the american people sequester wouldn't happen. but it is happening. it's happening right now in the law. the house has proposed a budget that eliminates cuts on the defense department, besides other cuts to replace them when. the president is saying he wants to eliminate the sequester are apparently indicates he does, but he wants to do it raising taxes and that is a nonstarter. under our current day, we increase spending every year. the difficulty is that pointed out before our committee so many times is half the reductions in spending and sequester file on the defense department come which only make ucmj six of the spending i
